Guide to Arnhem Land
Bordered by Kakadu National Park, the Arafura Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria, Arnhem Land is a vast, unspoiled wilderness area of more than 97,000 square kilometres (37,452 square miles).
Arnhem Land is wild, spiritual and diverse, with rugged coastlines, remote islands, lush rainforests, towering escarpments and savanna woodlands. A trip here will ignite your curiosity as you get to know the Traditional Custodians of Arnhem Land – the Yolngu people – on fishing expeditions, outback safaris and cultural tours.
A permit is required to enter Arnhem Land. Ask your tour provider if a permit will be arranged on your behalf, or visit the Northern Land Council for more information on applying for a permit.
